Yahoo – Boston Red Sox prospect Jon Denney was arrested for driving with a suspended license early Thursday morning and responded by allegedly telling police he “made more money than we could ever see,” according to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office arrest report obtained by Yahoo Sports. Denney, 19, was arrested at 2:22 a.m., at least his second run-in with law enforcement in the last three months. Police had pulled him over at 11:57 p.m. Wednesday night after he “accelerated quickly,” causing his Ford F-150 Raptor to fishtail, according to the report. Denney furnished a license that was restricted for business and emergency purposes after a DUI in Arkansas, the report said. When asked by police why he was in the Fort Myers Beach area, Denney, according to police, replied: “Partying and looking to get some pussy.” 

Police issued a citation, according to the report, and Denney called a friend to drive him home. About two hours later, the report said, police saw Denney enter his truck and drive out of a parking lot. When pulled over and asked why he was driving, Denney said he was giving a woman a ride, according to the report. “Denney then became belligerent and started to cuss” at the police officers, the report said. According to police, Denney said “he was a Boston Red Sox player and he didn’t care [sic] he had money and made more money than we would ever see.” When handcuffed, the report said, Denney said “he would be out in no time because of who he played for and that he made three million a year.” Boston drafted Denney, a catcher, in the third round of last season’s draft out of Yukon (Okla.) High. He signed for $875,000. Players in Class A, where Denney is expected to start the season, make a little more than $1,000 a month. Denney was booked by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at 4:06 a.m. Thursday. He was released at 8:30 a.m. after posting a $500 bond.

 

 

I was actually getting ready to take Jon’s side here.   Because I’m pretty sure you can’t get arrested for partying and looking to get some pussy.  That’s as America as America gets.   Unfortuantly he should have just gone home once the cops pulled him over.  I mean I have no problem with people pushing their luck and driving with a suspended license, but if you get caught it’s game over.  He was lucky to be let go the first time.  Only a fool gets back in his truck 2 hours later.

PS – How weird is it that it doesn’t mention him drinking in this article?  That has to be the upset of the century.  I actually had to go back and reread it to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.   Nope.  He was just cited for driving with a suspended license and being an asshole.  Nothing about drinking though.   So that means he accelerated quickly and fishtailed for no reason?  Just a shitty driver?   Weird.  A little too weird, but whatever.
